Yes, of course countersteering still works on a bike like that. It's the only way for any single track wheeled vehicle to turn.

Looks like the trike ahead is about to put a wheel across the double yellow - BFD!

Too much brakes on the front and the forks would probably bend like a plastic straw. Much better to go out in a blaze of glory. I do see brake lines going toward the hub, well hidden brakes. Priorities in order.

I think you can see the caliper tucked in behind the fork leg. Small single piston mounted on the leg. Not much braking power there considering the weight and power of the machine they are intended to stop, but better than nothing in front.

I'm sure you will be receiving a strongly-worded letter from the BMW Markenauftritt und Ruf Division (Brand Appearance and Reputation Division), notifying you that you are in apparent breach of the Upkeep Claus of the BMW Rider Agreement, and that possible legal action is possible due to your negligence. Please be home tomorrow between the hours of 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to sign for the registered letter.
Or not.

Occasional poster? Yes.

Subtle? Not so much.

And you don't know Yellow Wolf. Nor his Wing.

I doubt he'll respond to your sillyness.
